Today's useful tip for Internet Explorer: how to change the character substitution for custom searches.

Say you set up "wiki", to take you to a wikipedia article. But you find that going to "Deal or No Deal" actually takes you to "Deal+or+No+Deal". Turns out that the substitution is set in the registry, under e.g. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\wiki for our "wiki" keyword. The format appears to be [before]=[after]. So just change " "="+" to " "="_", and it works!
